My thoughts;

What a great book for kids and adults.  So many different crafts that can be made from duct tape.  I never knew how much fun it would be to create so many different things from duct tape until this book. 
Each duct tape craft in this book is very colorful and has the easy instructions with it on the same page.

My daughter and I have spent hours making all kinds of things from this book.  She has even made earrings for her friends birthday.  I loved making the duct tape flowers.  There are many different flowers to be made out of this book.  The wallets, beach bag and hair bow are a few crafts that we have made from this book.

This book will remain in our home for many years.  My daughter has even planned on having a sleep over duct tape craft making party.

This looks like a neat book! I have never tried to make anything out of duct tape, but everyone else in the family is crafty except me. The kids would probably love this!
